Tier A, B, C?

Can someone give me an idea what a "Tier G" activity is?

The “tier” of an activity is defined specifically within the context of what that type of activity is. This means tier G sports and tier G competing groups like MUN or Debate are perceived differently. However, like Max said they’re generally the same in membership - tier G is pretty low ranking and is essentially when you are just a member of a club/team but you don’t do much other than participate and maybe you’ve competed in a couple competitions but not won awards. An example would be participating in the school newspaper by writing one article a month but not being a section editor or major contributor.

So it’s different for each activity but a Tier G is likely an activity that is well recognized but is not at the highest level. An example would be part of a team that won state but you weren’t the MVP or any other big award. It can also be president of a large club at school.

TLDR it’s significant recognition but either not individual or it’s individual school wide.

Hope this helps and please comment if you need clarification as I’d be happy to help clarify!
